  • Accommodation (USD 100)

    Ans:
  • YES
  • Travel (USD 140)

  • What will you accomplish by being at FUDCon? (Please be as specific as possible, since this is the most important factor in granting requests.)
    Ans:
    There are a couple of things I'd like to work on:

  • make a working plugin/module for easy window resizing for multiple window view.
  • kick-off something for development of a project which I call MyFedora, which will be something like this -> http://susestudio.com/

  • If you are requesting airfare, include complete flight information such as flight numbers, desired departure and arrival airports, and times. Also let us know if you have specific time restrictions.
    Ans:

  • I am requesting airfaire.

  • From New Delhi to Pune

    • Airlines: Indigo
    • Flight Number: 6E-137

  • There are time restrictions as I am a student and I have some restrictions with college and my academics. Wouldn't want to miss many classes. Please consider the request.

  • Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can attend FUDCon? If so, approximately how long does that processing take?
    Ans:
    Yes

  • Include any additional, relevant information.
    Ans:

  • I have been a Fedora user for a very long time.
  • But, I have never been a Fedora contributor, which I always wanted to be. Therefore, I'd like to come to FUDCon, see how contributors work and discuss some of my ideas.
  • I am Google Summer of Code 2011 student, working with Drupal - http://groups.drupal.org/node/145579.
  • RHCE - https://www.redhat.com/wapps/training/certification/verify.html?certNumber=805010876053407
  • This subsidy is very important for me. I am already going to attend DrupalCon London in this August. There are a lot of expenses involved in attending FUDCon as well. But I really want to be there and be a part of the awesome community.

This ticket was approved in the August 5th subsidy meeting. We've agreed to pay up to $140 USD for travel fare, as well as four nights in the hotel.

I tried reaching out to you via your number and it seems to be invalid. Your email bounces and I have tweeted instead. https://twitter.com/#!/rahulsundaram/status/112817862057529345. If we dont hear back within a week, I am going to ask to withdraw sponsorship. Thanks.

I am sorry for bouncing back of emails. My contact details have changed due to some reasons and it completely slipped of my mind to update them. My email should work though. I will check on that again.

I have pre-registered for the conference and marked myself for room-sharing. I will book my tickets tomorrow and will get back to you ASAP.

Thanks for contacting me via Twitter. I would have completely missed out on this otherwise.
